Gateway update Aug. 2008

Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

Greetings in His name!

Today we have a bit of news we would love to share with you.

Gateway has just received 1 widow, her daughter and 3 other children to live with us. We would like to ask you to join us in prayer that they will settle down in this new environment soon and start developing a sense of one family under the care of Gateway. The Lord is indeed increasing our boundaries. As you know we have already begun to help with the care of Lym and Rasmey, so now this brings the number of Gateway children and widows to 7 people. God is good!

We would also like to ask you to pray that each of these four children will find sponsor families. Each Gateway child is to be supported by a sponsor family overseas. There are more children in Boh Khnao commune as well as in the surrounding areas who seem to meet our conditions. Finding sponsor families for these four children will allow us to take more children who need help.

All the children living now at Gateway do have mothers. However, knowing that they do not have the means to take care of their children’s wellbeing, they have come and knocked on Gateway’s door. Generation after generation, the poverty stricken cycle of life has long been passed down to these children. We would like so much to see the end of it as they come under our care and start living a life in which they can have hopes and dreams.

If the Spirit of the Lord speaks to you or you may know someone who might generously join this program and support a child, please contact us.

We thank you again for your prayers, encouragement and support,

Taka and Christina for all of us at Gateway
